Do not want to format my memory card

Please help!!!!!!!

I placed the memory card into my computer as I always do, to download the images without using the programme.

However, this time I placed it into my computer and it said I need to format the card.

I placed the memory card back into my camera and it came up with card setup option, giving me an option of either cleaning the card with a dry cloth or format the card.

I do not want to fromat the card as I really want the photos on there, so I removed it and cleaned it, but it keeps saying the same thing, giving me no other option other then to format.

I do not want to format there are photos on there from a once in a lifetime event!!!! Is there anything I could do?????

Camera does not recognize memory card


I hope you were able to upload your images to your computer before this problem occurred. It could be that there is a corrupted file on the card. Have you tried to format the card on the computer before trying it in the camera?

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

What can I do to rescue wanted data from formatted memory card?


Hi Christina
This is why we make a backup file!
There is a possibility that only the file allocation directory has been erased. Leaving the data intact. (computers erase the index & leave the book) Depends on the Phone manufacturers type of erase.
You will have to have an adapter that allows the memory card to plug in to the USB port on a computer. Then there are utility programs available to copy or backup or recover the files.
You would probably be better off dropping into a computer shop with good technicians that have these recovery utilities.
You won't forget to do a backup every month from now on Eh!

Good Luck
Cheers

Dont worry, a good SD card recovery program can help you. you can recover your images from SD card with asoftech photo recovery program.You can see

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

It sounds as if the card was not formatted for the camera before it was put to use. My suggestion is that you attempt to download the images that you do have to the computer, then format the memory card. Always format a new card and after each time you download pictures from the card to the computer.

My Canon A3100 is saying memory card error - underneath it says memory card locked. I tried the option of sliding the switch etc. but without any luck. Can anyone help me with this. The memory card was...


The little lock slider switch should be pushed forward to the top edge of the memory card towards the gold contacts to unlock. I hate asking a question to solve a question but did you use a card reader or did you download the images from the camera through a USB cable. Two things well maybe three first make sure the slider is in the correct position then see if you can format the memory card in the camera. What you might have done to cause this error is disconnected the camera from the computer without first "ejecting" which shuts off the card before disconnect. Another thing and I dearly hope you didn't do this would be to have formatted the memory card in the computer.

If you didn't eject the memory card it is possible to have caused the memory card to crash
Please do not format a memory card in the computer and expect it to work again in the camera
It might be possible to re-format the memory card in the camera after formatting in the computer but it's a stroke of luck.
Always format the memory card in the camera you are using it in.

Cant erase my memory


Hi!

You may try to format the memory card. You can use either your camera or a computer to format the memory card. To use your camera - select the option (under Menu) to format the memory card. When using a PC - go to My computer, right click your camera or the memory card an select Format. This will wipe out all data in the card.


I hope that helps!

Have a nice day!

Memory card error


Dear jk_cibergirl:

It is likely that some type of corruption has happened to your memory card. Try reformatting the card in your camera to correct any problems. If that works then you should be fine to take more pictures from this point. If not, you may need to get another memory card. Check your memory card manufacturer for warranty information.

Just a few tips to help you avoid this problem in the future:

1. Even though your computer can format a memory card, do
not ever do so from your PC. Your computer lays down a
different type of file table than your camera, which can lead
to data corruption.

2. Always format the memory card in the camera it will be
used in after each downloading session AND even when
using a brand new card right out of the box for the first time.

3. Do not share cards among cameras - even if they use the
same type of card - even if they are the same camera model!
Consider your memory card to be camera specific.

4. Do not place your camera close to strong magnetic fields
(e.g on top of a television)

5. Lastly, even though your camera has a single image erase
button, do not do what some do and fill your card up and then
go into the playback mode and erase a few images just to
take a few more new images. This almost certainly will lead
to data corruption on your card. Download your images and
reformat the card to take additional shots.

If you need to recover any lost images from that memory card, you can give it a try by simply downloading free software from the internet (such as Zero Assumption software available at www.z-a-recovery.com), connecting your memory card to your computer via a card reader, and running the program on the card reader volume.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
